Default For the LOLs

The best breed misinformation you've seen posted on the web. (We're doing this on another forum and it's hilarious).

This is my favorite (from wikipedia no less). I should really edit it but it makes me LOL.

Quote:
Temperament
The Papillon has the appearance of a dainty toy breed, but many owners will claim that their dogs are "big dogs in little dog suits". Some people find that their Papillon is very capable of handling a good five-mile walk. One aspect of the Papillon that has led many to believe the "big dog" assertion is this breed's surprising athletic ability. Don't be suprised by this dog's size and appearance, they are extremely athletic. In contrast to its staid and stately representation in the Old Master portraits, the Papillon is highly energetic and intelligent. The breed is far older than any other represented by the AKC and is more notable for its psychological abilities than its athletic parlor tricks; the Papillon's true strength lies in its ability to perceive the emotional needs of its owner and to translate them into a healthy psychological environment. In other words, the animal becomes what the owner needs at the time, depending on circumstances. Provided their genetic structure is sound, and they are not the product of "puppy mill" inbreeding, they are generally healthy animals. Papillons are built for movement, and most do not need any encouragement to apply their energy to athletic activities. They enjoy at least a half hour running about.[citation needed]
Lol, beware my psychic dogs. They read and alter minds.

In fact, Nard is reading your mind right now....



It's all part of the world domination plot.

Here's another hilarious one from Dogbreedinfo about flat coats.

Quote:
Be sure to take them for daily walks to satisfy their migration instinct, Flat Coats who are over excitable are showing signs that they are lacking in the Walk.

And where do flat coats migrate? Are they like Canadian geese?

Likewise what is 'the Walk'.

Maybe they migrate and are in some weird doggy cult.

From DogBreedInfo:
Quote:
Unlike some herding breeds, which are bred to bark constantly at livestock, the Aussie is a quiet worker
By whose definition of quiet? Beethoven?

Other than there, there are just a few inaccuracies. Aussies are fairly forgiving and have a good sense of humor, but there are plenty out there that would not qualify for the "easy-going" label. There are plenty of Aussies that require careful handling, especially in public. They can have very set definitions of their space bubble and some will quickly use teeth to enforce it. These are sharp dogs, maybe not overall as sharp as say, the ACD, and the sharpness is becoming increasingly rare, found more often in the older working lines and very infrequently in the show ring, as it's counterproductive to have a reserved and sharp dog in the ring in most cases.

"Pugs who do not have strong human leaders can become jealous, and begin to display guarding behaviors, such as guarding furniture, food, toys, or other spots in the house."

Really... Seriously... Pugs are jealous in general and they really could care less what's going on as long as they're being fed and loved... I don't think they even know HOW to guard...

"It is relatively inactive indoors and will do okay without a yard."

Izzie, Chai, and Ruby obviously never got that memo...

"While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as instinct tells a dog the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human."

Did Cesar write this page on Pugs?

"This breed is a seasonally heavy shedder."

If by seasonal you mean all the seasons...

All from Dog Breed Info.

If you look at the bottom of DBI, you'll see this huge text box promoting CM as the "cure for everything".

Just saw that... DBI never had much credibility in the first place, i think that just puts it in the negatives now...

Wow I love DBI, lol...

"The Plott has a curiously sharp and high-pitched voice, unlike the deep-throated howl common to other coonhounds."

While my older female screams on tree, apparently the two younger foghorns missed this memo. How can you make a generalization like this about an ENTIRE BREED?!

"The Plott Hound is not recommended for apartment life."

Oops.
Their basset information, on the other hand, is spot on - most people don't get this part right:

"They are very inactive indoors but outdoors they will run for hours in play if given the chance."

Usually I hear that they're lazy and not prone to activity. At all. Even though they're rabbit hunting dogs. ?!?
